Monitoring Desk

ANKARA: US technology giant Apple has announced a voluntary recall of a limited number of older-generation 15-inch MacBook Pro units which contain a battery that may overheat and pose a safety risk.

“The units were sold primarily between September 2015 and February 2017 and can be identified by their product serial number,” the company said in a statement on its official website on Thursday.

The statement underlined that the recall does not affect any other 15-inch MacBook Pro units or other Mac notebooks.

“Because customer safety is a top priority, Apple is asking customers to stop using affected 15-inch MacBook Pro units,” it added.

According to the statement, the costumers can find out if their device is eligible for a battery replacement on company’s support website by entering the serial number of their MacBook Pro — Retina, 15-inch, Mid 2015. (AA)
